Canada Nickel Company closes 2nd tranche of private placement

Oct 15, 2020

Canada Nickel Company Inc. has closed the second tranche of its previously announced brokered "bought deal" private placement financing and has issued an aggregate of 2,950,000 common shares of the Company designated as "flow-through shares" at a price of $1.70 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,015,000.

The offering was led by Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. on behalf of a syndicate of underwriters that included Eight Capital and Haywood Securities Inc. (together, the "Underwriters"). In consideration for their services, the Company paid the Underwriters a cash commission of 6.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering and issued non-transferable compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 6.0% of the aggregate number of Flow-Through Shares sold under the Offering. Each Compensation Option is exercisable into one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") at a price of $1.50 per Compensation Option. Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $2.10 per common share until October 14, 2022, subject to adjustment and acceleration in certain events.

The gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses that are "flow-through mining expenditures" (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) on the Company’s properties in Ontario, which will be renounced to the subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2020, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of the gross proceeds raised from the issue of Flow-Through Shares.
All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring February 15, 2021. The Offering is subject to final acceptance of the Exchange.
